The first rule
of graphics is NEVER link to anyone's graphics. If you try it from
a Xoom site, like this, all you will get is a Xoom logo. Always
download the graphics and upload them to your own site. You can
get more information from Web
Prestige on the whys and wherefores and where art thous! If
you use Web TV, there is a way for you to use graphics without linking
to them, too. Go here
As a rule, the
sets are meant to be used as sets. Most of the buttons are not really
transparent, and probably won't look right on another background.
Be sure that the link tag for your buttons includes 'border=0'.
For example, a link back to Dreamcatcher Graphics would look like
src="1adclogobtn.gif" border=0 alt="Dreamcatcher
Graphics" width=139 height=83></a>
tag assures the page will not open inside a frameset. Using 'border=0'
gets rid of the blue box around your link buttons and the height
and width tags help your page to load faster. Check out the Set
of the Week for more information on this and giving credit for
the material you use on your site.
to keep an eye on is your background color. Even if you're using
a background, your guests should be able to read the text on your
page while they are waiting for the image to load. Make sure that
you choose a color similar to your background image. Unfortunately,
I've been very inconsiderate and haven't put the hex codes on the
set pages for you. I plan to go back and do that one of these days.
In the meantime, you can look at the source html to see what I used
(assuming mine matches). :) If you need any help, just holler!
